Not quite the same thing, but sometimes I get emails at work addressed to Jennifer. My name is Jessica and it is right there in my email signature. I don’t get it either!

@lalalyanne:  Any hope of blaming it on autocorrect?

Haha, I am a college instructor, and I *always* get emails and papers from students with my last name spelled wrong. Like, really? It’s IN MY EMAIL and on the syllabus, on our course website, on the assignment sheet, etc, etc… Ugh!! Lol, I feel your pain. And Lyanne is very pretty!

I get this often too. Changing one letter at the end of my name makes it a guy’s name instead of a girl. I see emails go around with me cc’d and people who’ve never met me referring to me as a guy. Alternatively, everyone adds an extra A I my name and pronounces it differently. My name is fairly unique so I guess that’s why, I’ve only met a few other girls named that. I’m so used to it now that I don’t even bother correcting anyone who puts the extra A in there.

That drives me nuts! It’s never happened to me but I see people do it all the time on Facebook and feel so embarassed for them. There is LITERALLY no excuse when the proper spelling is right above the box you’re typing in.

My name is Jamie-lee. I’m constantly getting Jamie-Lynn, it drives me batty!

in written form, I’m always getting jaime. This one is more forgivable, but still drives me a bit Nuts.
